Financial Stability

Many people struggle to get by, even working multiple jobs. Family-sustaining income is a cornerstone of financial stability: the key to paying the rent, putting food on the table, and affording childcare and transportation. It is also the springboard to longer term asset building strategies such as saving to buy a home, sending kids to college, and saving for retirement.

United Way of Pickens County partners with the local community to develop resources and opportunities to help individuals and families become financially stable and independent.
